180g Audiophile Vinyl LP!
1969 Trojan Records Compilation Featuring Early Lee Perry Recordings & More!
Numbered, Limited Edition Orange Vinyl - 1000 Copies!

The Upsetter is a rocksteady, reggae compilation that was originally released in 1969 on the Trojan label. The album features early recordings by the iconic producer Lee Perry. Most of the instrumentals are by Perry's studio band The Upsetters, but the recordings also feature vocal tracks by Busty Brown and The Muskyteers. The latter are also known as The Silvertones, but sometimes they recorded under the name of The Muskyteers. On The Upsetter they've recorded their version of Brook Benton's Sixties R&B/pop song "Kiddy-O."

The Upsetter is available as a limited edition of 1,000 individually numbered copies on orange colored vinyl.

Considered revolutionary in Jamaican music circles at the time, the aggressive yet tight instrumentals might sound at first a bit thin and trebly to new listeners used to the booming bass overload of contemporary reggae, but the interplay of dazzling organist Glen Adams, guitarist Alva Lewis, and the rhythm section of brothers Carlton and Aston Barrett cannot be duplicated with the sequencers and electronics so prevalent in current Jamaican music, especially on wild grooves like "Night Doctor." Guest spots by singers Busty Brown and the Silvertones and saxophonist Val Bennett add to the excitement., 4/5 stars
